This boxed set contains Pat's rare 1953 Republic recordings and every single DOT recording made during the Fifties. The original mono versions of Pat's hits (never reissued on CD before now) are here together with the more commonly used 1959 stereo re-makes. All of Pat's albums from the Fifties are here (most in stereo), and there's even an unissued album. There are 88 previously unheard recordings, including unissued versions of several big hits like Friendly Persuasion, Love Letters, A Wonderful Time Up There, Too Soon To Know and others. The set is rounded out with an 84-page hardcover LP-sized book with a biography, discography and numerous photographs from Pat's personal collection.
Terrific, but ......................

"I am a life-long Pat Boone fan. The contents of this CD set, which span his early career, is a stroke of genius. It also allowed me to discard many vinyl albums of these songs.My gripes are 1) why repeat certain songs several times throughout the set, and 2) why mix hymns and Christmas music within Pat's ballads?.Over all, I do not regret purchasing this set and encourage other Pat Boone fans to do the same."
The essential Pat Boone

"I echo the sentiments of the other reviewers. A real nice bonus is an enclosed book filled with info on Pat including covering(recording someone elses songs i.e. Little Richard), recording data, a bio, and some great photos even one with his rival of the time, "Elvis". I too am brought back to the time of my high school years with fondness. JK"
